Baked Lemon Dill Chilean Sea Bass

Thursday, May 20, 2021
Chilean Sea Bass is a delicately mild white fish that if prepared properly, will be on a seafood lover's list of favorites.

Although one of the pricier fish to make, chances are after your first bite, you will have no problem paying extra for this pricey tasty seafood.

The lemon butter dill sauce combination brings out the taste of the Chilean Sea Bass, and it's so delicious, that makes this unforgettable.

We love the wonderful flaky thick white fish it's tender, juicy, and probably one of the tastiest white fish in the sea if you're a seafood lover.

Keeping the recipe simple is key, as this tastes great plain on its own no matter how it's cooked it's amazing in flavor.

The Chilean sea bass can be grilled, pan-fried, or baked in a sheet pan as we have with all your sides in one pan.

If you love seafood you may also like to try our Seafood Medley and Seafood and Crab Lemon Scampi recipes.

Of course, it's usually only on high-end seafood restaurants, so if you're a seafood lover do give it a try and maybe you will fall in love with the flavor as we did.

Chilean Sea Bass

This delicious Chilean Sea Bass is rich in omega-3 fatty acids with a unique large-flake texture and a very mild white flavor.

Healthy fat makes the fish a dream to cook because it won't dry out even if it's a bit overcooked and super simple so don't be intimidated, it's super simple to prepare.

Chilean sea bass is a deep water fish also known by the name "toothfish," and is caught in ocean waters around Antarctica.

You will probably only find this spectacular seafood in high-end fish markets or online.
